that same question in afghanistan or pakistan or africa 90% of ands come up and i think the as great tragedy we've lost that oral tradition and a rich tradition about folklore and heritage and faith and heritage. to honor that today i'd like to share with you a little story. it's a hard cover book that came out in march of 2006. anybody have a hard cover. wave it up here. you might not want it after i say this. i got to pick the title. three cups of tea but viking told me they would pick the subtitle and they picked one man mission to fight terrorism one school at a time. i objected because obviously there's- ways to fight tear riz m with education but i said i do this to promote peace and i started 8 years before 911 and this is about promoting peace through education. i've worked afghanistan and pakistan many years and i said we need to have a tribal council. i went to manhattan in the fall of 2005 and the big boss of the whole group, nancy shepherd and carlin coburn in publicity. we met in a little room and i stated my case and they said, this is your first book so you need to listen to a
? or is there a difference? different kind of mission. those who are in pakistan, particularly the safe havens that are in pakistan, what kind of policy will you have. thank you. >> the mission will be fundamentally different. just to repeat. our main reason, should we have troops in afghanistan post 2014 at the invitation of the afghan government will be to make sure that we are training, assisting and afghan security forces who have now taken the lead for and are responsible for security throughout afghanistan. and of interest to the united states, the very reason we went to afghanistan in the first place to make sure that al qaeda and its affiliates cannot launch an attack against the united states or other countries from afghan soil. we believe that we can achieve that mission in a way that's very different from the very active presence that we've had in afghanistan over the last 11 years. president karzai has emphasized the strains that u.s. troop presences in afghan villages for example have created. well, that's not going to be a strain that exists if there is a follow-up operation, bec
. this is pakistan in 2005. 74,000 people were killed in this earthquake. 18,000 were kids going to school. most of the kids that died were younger and female because they didn't have desks so when the walls started shaking and the roof came down they perished. there was 9,000 schools destroyed or rendered unusable. 1/2 million kids displaced out of school. in earthquake, they call it the coy mot that means this apocalypse. at first there was a very heroic effort. infer natio international community helped. after katrina red cross got 2,000,000 for help and for this earthquake red cross received 6 million dollars. the united states sent in helicopters that conductd the greatest air lift in the history of mankind. moved about 20 thousand on thes in the mountains to keep 1/2 million people a hive during the wintertime. it was very heroic and people were grateful. aid has dropped 70 percent after a year in the wake of that void many jihad and people labeled terrorists have set up camps. this is one here. in pakistan. and in that camp, there are many kids that are previously were going to school and
>> more than 100 people killed across pakistan in a string of shootings and bombings. good to have you with us. this is al jazeera in so hot. execution-style killings in the heart of paris this is al jazeera in doha. harding in for a president who has not been seen in weeks. thousandth -- partying for a president who has not been seen in weeks. pro-shaba's demonstrations. -- pro-chavez demonstrations. more than 100 people died in pakistan in a day of violence. in the capital of pakistan's province, more than 19 people killed in an explosion. of least 25 people died in the valley with a bomb exploded. these people gathered to see our religious leaders the. in karachi, nine people were shot dead in seven incidents. >> just a few of many of the victims and distraught relatives after one of the deadliest attacks in years. two bombs went off, starting a snooker club. police say the first explosion was set off by a suicide bomber. people rushed to the scene to help but were hit by a second blast. security officers, a journalist, and rescue workers were killed. >> as we got to the scene,
steve as well about your deep knowledge of afghanistan and pakistan and the other bordering states. >> this is one that has taken a back burner. we are not that far removed from the election. the election was about by and large nothing more than the economy and which side could do it better. as a result almost every other issue gets pushed to the side, but we have, you know -- there are realtime tables in place in afghanistan about what we have pledged to do, what we will do. you talk about chuck hagel. what chuck hagel's role in all of that, if et wants to be secretary of defense. it's a complicated issue, and it's more complicated politically, andrea, simply because the american public -- this happened in iraq. it's clearly happening in afghanistan. the american public has tired of our involvement in these conflicts. this is not something new. this is something that has been long and coming. if you look at the history in polling at least of when that happens, public opinion almost never sort of sways back up to all of a sudden be supportive and think this was a battle worth fight
. and with respect to pakistan's and safe havens there, afghanistan and the united states and pakistan all have an interest in reducing the threat of extremism in some of these border regions between afghanistan and pakistan. and that's going to require more than simply military actions. that's really going to require political and diplomatic work between afghanistan and pakistan and the united states, obviously, will have an interest in facilitating and participating in cooperation between the two sovereign countries. but as president karzai i think has indicated, it's very hard to imagine a stability and peace in the region if pakistan and afghanistan don't come to some basic agreement and understanding about the threat of extremism to both countries and both governments. and both capitals. and i think you are starting to see a greater awareness of that on the part of the pakistani government.

for some of the 120 victims of a series of deadly bombings across pakistan. british police say the child abuse by the late bbc presenter jimmy expands six decades. he could have been prosecuted if the allegations were taken more seriously. and cybercops warn of the growing threats from online crime. welcome to "bbc world news." also in this program, the first official portrait of the duchess of cambridge. we'll find out what kate makes of it. and they whistle while they work, the can anywherey island children learning an ancient language that sounds like bird songs. hello, more than 120 people are now learned to have died in a series of bomb attacks in pakistan. the deadliest attack was a double bombing which left 95 people dead. the targets were members of the minority shiite sect. our correspondent is there with more. >> yesterday there were two incidents, in one, insurgents claimed attacking the paramilitary forces. but the bigger attack was on sectarian group and it was basically in an area predominantly populated by the shiite minority in pakistan. and it seems the target was quite
. but for pakistan. it's the northern part of pakistan. waziristan, which is where the new homeland is of terrorist is who would attack the american homeland. i think what the objective would be is to have a small number of bases, small number of soldiers from which you could direct the trone attacks or special forces. remember, in the raid to kill bin laden, launching area was from afghanistan. and if we hadn't had afghanistan as the base from which we could launch, we'd have to do it by aircraft carrier or other means. it seems we should be infinitely more difficult. that is a strategic objective today. whether obama will be able to negotiate it, i don't know. but he did not succeed negotiating something similar in iraq. >> bret: the taliban is a big question about what happens after 2014. a lot of talk that we have had around this table over the years, 11 of them, has been about the taliban has a tempt calendar than we do. they operate in decades and centuries, while the u.s. has a different calendar here locally. today, karzai said there is a new effort underway to recognize tal taliban. >> we
our government carries out these kinds of attacks is of course in pakistan. in 2010 we saw what the obama administration was going to be like on this score. there was a u.s. drone strike in pakistan roughly every three days in 2010. 9 new america foundation tracks these things and their record shows it was an unprecedented spike in terms of how frequently we were killing people in pakistan using this particular method of killing people even though pakistan is supposedly not a war zone for us, at least not more than anywhere else in the world. interestingly, though, in 2013 it dropped off. in 2011 we launched from dropping drone strikes in pakistan roughly every three days to launching them on average every five days. then in 2012 it dropped off even further. we were launching a drone strike in pakistan about every seven or eight days as of 2012. well, how is this year shaping up? it is january 10th. so so far there have only been ten days in 2013. of those ten days in 2013 so far we have launched a drone strike in pakistan on seven out of those ten days. now, maybe that is an ab
, or instead, a different kind of mission? and pakistan in particular, the safe havens that are in pakistan, what kind of policy will you have? thank you. >> the mission will be fundamentally different. just to repeat, our main reason , should we have troops in afghanistan post-2014, at the invitation of the afghan government, will be to make sure that we are training, assisting, and advising afghan security forces who have taken the lead and are responsible for security throughout afghanistan and and interest the united states has, the reason we went into first place, is to make sure that al qaeda and its affiliates cannot launch an attack against the united states or other countries from afghanistan. we believe we can achieve that mission in a way that is very different from the very active presence that we have had in afghanistan over the last 11 years. president karzai has emphasized the strains that u.s. troop presence is in afghan villages, for example, has created. that will not be a strain if there is a follow-up operation because that will not be our responsibility. that will be th
from across the region, including pakistan. we welcome recent steps that have been taken in at that regard and we'll look for more tangible steps because a stable and secure afghanistan is in the interest not only of the afghan people and the united states, but the entire region. and finally, we reaffirm the strategic partnership we signed last year in kabul, the partnership between two sovereign nations, deepening ties of trade and commerce, development of education, opportunities for all afghans, men and women, boys and girls. this sends a clear message to afghans and to the region, as afghans stand up they will not stand alone. the united states and the world stands with them. now, let me close by saying that this continues to be a very difficult mission. our forces continue to serve and make tremendous sacrifices every day. the afghan people make significant sacrifices every day. afghan forces still need to grow strong. we remain vigilant against insider attacks. lasting peace and security will require governments and development that delivers for the afghan people an

.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman at least 120 people were killed in pakistan thursday in a series of bombing attacks mostly targeting shi'ite muslims and government soldiers. 86 deaths came in a twin bombing in the southern city of quetta, with scores dying in initial blast followed by more deaths when a car bomb struck police and rescuers who arrived at the scene. the band citigroup claimed responsibility for the attack, prompting fears of worsening sectarian violence in pakistan after more than 400 deaths in 2012. thursday's bombings came hours after at least six people were killed in the seventh publicly known u.s. drone strike inside pakistan in less than two weeks. the obama administration has begun 2013 with a flurry of drone attacks inside pakistan, raising speculation is accelerating the bombings before its capacity to carry them out is diminished with a planned withdrawal from afghanistan by the end of next year. according to a tally by the website long war journal, u.s. drones have already killed as many as 11 civilians and 30 suspected militants in the first 10 days of

to pakistan. for 27 years i raised my children there. my elderly father lived there comfortably without a third story. i felt lucky to live in this part of the sunset and can i have the overhead? this is looking in one direction and 37 houses and two story and looking in the other direction. as you can see there is a long line of concontinuous houses that works. i believe the sponsor is disingenuous and they own other homes and both seem unoccupied for a long time. it's not the residential guidelines purpose to fasailtate their needs if they can't find a way to live together in two homes. she's the neighbors to the north and on the south she said the south didn't oppose and in fact if that group is two letters from the people at that address opposing it. i can skip that. opposition of this proposal is overwhelming amongst our neighbors. as i walked around the neighborhood asking people how they felt what they want to did at 1587 all felt like i did except for two who just didn't care. to us it's home and we love the flow of the character of the neighborhood and don't want this d
held today for some of the victims of yesterday's bombings in pakistan. at least 120 people died in the blast. it was the deadliest day in that country in years. more than half of the victims died in attacks on a billiards hall in southwest pakistan. a sunni militant group with ties to the pakistani taliban is claiming responsibility for the bombings. >>> new this morning, an apparent hostage situation inside a los angeles mall that's still going on. l.a. police say two armed men somehow got into a mall at lax about two hours after closing last night. they believe they may be holding a woman hostage inside a nordstrom rack store. overnight workers were evacuated there. the situation closed part of the 405 freeway for a time. it's reopened. >>> during a week of talks aimed at ending gun violence, gunfire rings out at another school. a student shot one classmate and tried to shoot another in taft, california. police say the boy had been targeted students who bullied him. a teacher prevented more bloodshed by talking the student into putting the gun down. the injured student is in c

national security goal. we'd like to be able to also keep an eye on pakistan's western provincess from that area as well and continue some of the operations that as you know we've been conducting from afghanistan to go after terrorists there too. those are our core interests. everything else is in the category of nice to v. unfortunately you can't necessarily go after a terrorist unless you help the afghan government stay on its feet and that means you've got to help them politically, economically, with their own army, and if you're trying to rush out by 2014, by the end of next year, and pull out everybody except, you know, a few seals and delta force commandos the afghans may not have the help they need to hold their own country together and your ultimate goals may not be achievable. that is where there are a lot of issues that wind up getting brought here. one last one is the afghan presidential elections next year. hamid karzai is supposed to step down in about 15 months. i think he will. but there is a big question about who is going to replace him, how much he will try to influen
, including the areas most closer to pakistan. >> ambassador, i was struck by the last question that the president was asked at his joint press conference about afghan women. and in response, he said, in part, the afghan constitution protects the rights of afghan women and the u.s. strongly believes that afghanistan cannot succeed unless it gives opportunity to its women. what is the reality right now for women and girls in afghanistan? and what is the reality likely to be for women and girls after the u.s. troop presence is withdrawn? >> in the major cities in kabul, obviously, it's been a huge renaissance of women's rights and across the country and the u.s. military empowered young women building schools and institutions to promote women's rights and microfinance. but when you get closer outside the countryside, away from the major cities, there have been attacks by the taliban on schools, against women, and so, this is where the fault line lies. the women who are furthest away from the major cities of the -- that are under the control of the central government most at risk o
now over there. particularly with the tensions going on in pakistan and egypt and between muslims themselves. i just don't see the need for it. you know -- >> kimberly: don't want to put troops in harm's way for sure. >> dana: one reason you want photographic evidence on certain things to put to rest any conspiracy theories. but that hasn't happened when it came to bin laden. military said and president obama made the announcement. most of the world rejoiced that had finally come to pass. felt more at peace because of it. not that many conspiracy theories of things that the military didn't carry through. >> andrea: there were a couple on random blogs after it happened. i don't want to make a perverse spectacle out of his death. but i was thinking about it today. i remember pictures of the ambassador stevens and how beat up he was. and i thought you know what? i do want to see the photos. i want to see the knowcos. they're terrible. i understand there is a fear about them inciting violence. i have news for you. i won't tiptoe around and i don't think the country should tiptoe aroun
back al-qaeda and forced it out of afghanistan to the no man's land on the border with pakistan. if you are talking about nation building in afghanistan and creating some kind of stable legitimate law abiding democracy there we haven't succeeded to that degree. that is one of the reasons i think that the president if not rushing for the exits today was talking about a pretty fast walk to the exits because he realizes i think that the bigger goals he may have had for afghanistan at the beginning are impossible and that the only goal we can count on at this point is making sure that our enemies don't get a foot hold there again. >> shepard: to transfer security to a capable afghan security force. that is the goal. but we have a number of guests who come from from time to time including robert young peloton who has been over there recently and says it is just not working and i can't find the expert who can figure out long-term how it might work unless we just stick around there and help police them which of course is an option. >> chris: i'm not sure in the end and one of the things that t
party decides to end it. fill now expire january 1 next year. >> in pakistan the biggest city is on high alert after bombings that left 115 people dead. police forces are deployed throughout the capital conducting searches on vehicles after a militant group claims responsibility for a suicide bombing yesterday. another targeted soldiers at a commercial area where the large shiite community. people are warned to look out for anything suspicious. >> president obama welcomes president karzai to the white house to discuss the future of the united states war in afghanistan. karzai attended a work dinner with secretary of state, hillary clinton yesterday. he also visited the pentagon where he was greeted by defense secretary panetta. sources say karzai arrived with a wish lit of military equipment including drones and helicopters and other hardware to ensure afghan security when nato forces leave at the end of next year. >> 5:45. check in flights higher at the super bowl gets closer. >> and the job a at american express which is cutting 5,400 jobs scheduled to take place this year mostly in tr
years by the taliban. we succeeded against that. there are executions and -- pakistan is going through a very difficult time. and other of events there, they are all a source of concern for us. i can speak with satisfaction, the suffering that we have had, our schools are safer in the past three years, the great majority of girls go to school in afghanistan do if in safety and security. we have not had any major incidents. and this concern for families and students would be less and less a matter to think of. thank you, sir. >> this will conclude the program. i have one important announcement before i thank our remarkable speaker. please do not leave your seat until you hear the voice in the wilderness that will this mess us. and only the afghan delegation will depart until such moment. on behalf of all of us, you have given us allot to think about. a lot of inspiration. women are lucky to have your support and we look forward to a wonderful future for your country. thank you so much.

. it was the deadliest day in pakistan in years. >>> later today the president of afghanistan meets with president obama at the white house. kyla. >> reporter: pam, the white house says we shouldn't expect any firm numbers or timeline to come out of today's talks but it's still a critical meeting. president obama and president hamid karzai will discuss how fast the u.s. will withdraw troops from afghanistan. the war formerly ends next year. but the u.s. military has proposed keeping as many as 15,000 troops in afghanistan past 2014 and that is to continue pursuing terrorists and training afghan security forces. karzai spent yesterday meeting with president leaders and asked for military equipment like drones and helicopters to insure security in afghanistan. >> it's fair to say we immediate very good progress on all of the key issues we discussed. >> one of the other big things the pentagon wants to know if afghan leaders will keep the taliban out of their country after u.s. troops lead. what karzai had to say about that when i see you next. live in washington kyla campbell. >>> time 5:15. weeks after m
on the job. >>> new this morning from pakistan shiites in the city that was hit yesterday by several terror attacks that killed 120 people they are refusing to bury the dead. it's a protest to demand that the government do something to protect them from attacks by sunni extremists. >>> in less than an hour from right now a very critical meeting agains between president obama and hamid karzai. as kyla campbell reports the outcome could determine how many american troops come home this year. kyla. >> reporter: dave more than 60,000 u.s. troops are in afghanistan right now. president obama has not determined how many will leave the middle east this year. the u.s. war on terror in afghanistan officially ends next year. u.s. and nato forces are set to leave by the year of 2014. this year afghan forces are supposed to take the lead in security and that means thousands of u.s. traps could return home. but president obama is open to keeping anywhere from 3,000 to 15,000 u.s. troops in afghanistan. after the end of the war next year. the u.s. leaders want to make sure afghan officials can run their
